Labor lawS

Employees should be paid for all of the work that they perform.  While this may seem an obvious statement to most, many employers nevertheless fail to pay their employees all that they are owed.  Many employers also shirk the various regulations concerning employee wages, including paying overtime, paying spread of hours pay, and providing a meal break.  These violations can end up costing employees significant compensation which they are lawfully owed.

  • Unpaid Wages

  • Unpaid Overtime

  • Misclassification

  • Unpaid Commissions

  • Freelancer claims

Other labor laws provide certain regulations for particular types of workers.  Commissioned salespersons, for example, must be paid in accordance with the New York Labor Law.  New laws concerning the payment of fees to freelance workers have also been recently enacted in New York City.
